LoveYourself to Dethrone Reigning HIV with the PHL’s Biggest Testing Day Event


Wazzup Pilipinas!

On its way to dethrone HIV, LoveYourself, Inc. has sought a partnership with Mister Gay World Philippines Organization (MGWPO) to eradicate the social stigma on the disease and its relevant interventions.

Advocating for timely testing and treatment, the LoveYourself-MGWPO partnership entails the promotion of the LoveYourself Incognito 2.0, which is the country’s largest community-based HIV screening that is free, anonymous and fast, set to happen on 27 November at Victoria Court Malate in Manila.

With the aim to continuously implement HIV and AIDS early detection programs, both organizations together with the Department of Health-Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (DOH-RITM) and Pilipinas Shell Foundation, Inc. are calling individuals to have themselves tested for HIV by signing up on go.loveyourself.ph/incognito.

LoveYourself Executive Director Ronivin G. Pagtakhan said “We are trying to build as many allies as possible towards the HIV cause to make our call to action within the community more resounding and sustainable.”

Pagtakhan emphasized that “the partnership with MGWPO would greatly help the advocacy in spreading the awareness and reach the unchartered waters that only pageant organizers have an expertise on.”


Sharing the same platform and passion of providing sexual health assistance and education in the community, MGWPO Board of Director Ryan D. Soto, said “that with LoveYourself, this partnership will save more lives and provide more assistance in the future.”

By erasing the stigma on the disease and relevant interventions, Soto said “[MGWPO] will use its influence to the immediate advancement of HIV and AIDS treatment and research, and will use its winners to be the voice of any medical breakthrough [on the disease].

Based on the latest advisory of the DOH-Epidemiology Bureau, there are 764 newly-diagnosed Filipinos living with HIV for the month of August alone. Meanwhile, only 611 persons living with HIV (PLHIV) from those diagnosed in August and earlier have subjected themselves to treatment.

Pagtakhan stressed that “only through testing that we can we detect if one has contracted HIV and we help newly diagnosed PLHIV through treatment, so these constitute the focus of our partnership.”

“Everyone must be responsible to his/her health and welfare and educate others about the importance of early detection of such diseases… By giving our candidates complete HIV and AIDS seminar through LoveYourself, they would be able to share [what they have learned] with others,” said Soto who also opened MGWPO’s doors for future programs with the advocacy group.


Apart from conducting an HIV101 Seminar with MGWP 2016 candidates, the partnership became even more inevitable after three LoveYourself advocates donned HIV awareness and advocacy as their platform during the MGWP 2016 competition which concluded last 02 October at the University of the Philippines Main Theater.

These advocates were Christian Khalil Vera Cruz representing Zamboanga del Sur who also landed as this year’s 2nd runner-up, Jesse Regin Nacilla of Cebu and Jerome Lacsa from Rizal who placed in the top 10 and top 15, respectively.

Moreover, this year’s MGWP winner John F. Raspado of Baguio City and his 1st runner-up John Bench T. Ortiz are LoveYourself Incognito 2.0’s ambassadors together with Vera Cruz.

Previous MGWP title holders, such as Mister Gay World 2015 2nd runner-up Christian R. Lacsamana, MGWP 2012 Carlito F. Rosadiño Jr. and MGWP 2013 Erimar S. Ortigas have used their voices to help the HIV cause by joining LoveYourself.

LoveYourself held the first-ever Incognito last May 29 which helped 300 individuals know their HIV status. This is the highest number of individuals tested for HIV in a mass screening event in the Philippines.

Back in July, LoveYourself also gained the support of the reigning Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach by providing financial assistance through the help of the Philippine Independence Day Council, Inc. an umbrella organization of Filipino American associations in the U.S. The advocacy group takes pride in this as the Miss Universe is the most influential ambassador of HIV advocacy to date.


MGWPO is a non-profit organization supporting the fight against sexual prejudice, injustice and equality for the LGBT community across the world. The organization aims to modernize the image towards gays and break all stereotypes from the public perception. It also aims to continue the advocacy of HIV/AIDS awareness and treatment assistance for everyone.

LoveYourself is a non-profit organization conducting HIV testing, counseling and peer education founded on enriching an individual’s self-worth. LoveYourself can be reached through its official website at www.loveyourself.ph, on Facebook at www.facebook.com/loveyourself.ph/and on Twitter at @LoveYourselfPh and Instagram at @loveyourself.ph.

  2. I became Hepatitis B-positive in 2013, But like most of the over 40 million positive Men/Women worldwide, I was infected by my long-term regular partner. The challenge for every positive person is to take back control of their lives, in "Living Positively" with the virus. I’d always believed that good health was never maintained only by taking medication. More than ever, Hepatitis reinforced for me that health is not just physical health, but also mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. An important part of the healing process for me is to be active in Hepatitis education, support and advocacy. I volunteer in a number of Hepatitis B organizations, and in particular Positive Men/Women, because the impact of Hepatitis B on women is very different than from men. As once a Hepatitis positive person, I will forever be grateful to God Almighty to reach me when i thought it is all over, Today am happy with my family living free after the medical doctor have confirmed my Hepatitis B status Negative, I have never in my life believed that Hepatitis B could be cured by any herbal medicine, I want to make sure that Hepatitis B never happens to anyone else. We can’t prevent Hepatitis by punishment, by stigma and discrimination. It’s only through building a safe, supportive and caring environment and that positive people still have hope. With the help of Dr. Oraede herbs you can get cured from HIV, Hepatitis B, Cancer and many other other deadly diseases. Reach him on dr.oraedespellhome@hotmail.com, dr.oraedespellhome1@gmail.com

  10. "I went for a rapid test and never expected the answer to be that I was positive. I fell to the floor, cried like I was in a soap opera, and asked "who's going to raise my children?” The tester was so amazing, so helpful in talking me down from this reaction, telling me he'd known people living with HIV for 25 years and more. I latched on to those words like a life vest those first few months."
    "I don't really remember much about the day or the month or two following. I do remember sitting in my doctor's office as she told me I was HIV positive. remember looking at the painting on the wall. I became instantly numb and everything became a blur." "I was speechless, frozen in time. I couldn't believe it. I couldn't stop crying...
    As fate may have it, a friend of mine introduced me to a Herbal Doctor who can CURE several kinds of dieseases like:
    HIV/AIDS
    HEPATITIS
    OBESITY
    SYPHILIS
    CANCER
    At first, i didn't believe because there are lots of frauds and scammers online but i decided to give it a try because i have nothing else to lose.
    To my greatest surprise, Dr.RABIU NEVER DEMANDED FOR ANY FEE when i contacted him. All he did was to give me a Herbal Medicine and guidelines on how i am to take them. I followed all procedures as instructed, and after 12 days i went back for a check up, and i was tested NEGATIVE.
    If you are interested in getting cured of your own Illness, you can contact the doctor that cured me, with the following communication link.Dr. RABIU
    E-mail: (rabiuspelltemple@gmail.com).Or Whatsapp contact:+2349034519429
